I am a total ring fanatic. The flashier the better I say (who’s with me?!). Instead of leaving my favorite pieces around the house, where they’re destined to get lost, I decided to give my boring plain ring holder a makeover. Who knows, maybe it will to encourage me to store my rings properly when I’m done wearing them.
The best part about this project is that you don’t really have to have experience as a painter to achieve this abstract look. Just start by brushing on your lightest colors. You can then go back in with your darker colors, somewhat overlapping what you just painted; however, be sure the previous color has dried so you don’t smear. I found with the Vitrea 160, the lighter colors still peeked through (you can see that a bit in the photo above).
Once all of the paint is dry, you can add dots, dashes or other patterns with a Sharpie. If you used the same paint that I did, you’ll want to let it dry for 24 hours then bake for 40 minutes at 325˚F to cure completely.
